Subject: How Catholic reformers discerned and promoted The Benefit of Christ's Death to their brethren, and their hope for a better church thereby.
At the time the Reformation began in the North European Countries, there was a movement within the Roman Catholic Church that recognized the truth of the claims of justification by faith, and the impossibility of bringing man's works before God to gain salvation. So the efforts of reformers like Martin Luther were not without effect, or sympathy within the confines of the Papal domain. Reformers of significant ranks within that church wanted to distance believers from a focus away from their church's governmental structure, toward the believer's relationship to Christ. So these members wrote the treatise on The Benefit of Christ's death. Their concepts mirrored those of Reformation figures, and the desire to get Rome back to its purpose. But the overall working of the Papacy and traditions prevailed, an inquisition was begun. The entrenched state of that body of Christ continued in its course. This book was written to show what the Catholic reformers from within their places there tried to accomplish by bringing their views forward, and insisting on our total trust in the Work of Christ, and his provision for salvation. It may bring the comprehension that Catholicism is not a monolithic unthinking structure, without thoughtful men who realize the truth from the very scriptures their church proports to represent.
